Avonlea is a 17-year-old singer-songwriter from northern California. She plays piano, ukulele, guitar, and produces all of her own music. Her music is a largely acoustic mix of soul and a folk-y sound.
I’ve been pursuing music professionally since the age of 11. I started working on Instagram early 2015 posting ukulele covers. I made a name for myself soon after by getting posted on @omgvoices, @chorus, and @thegoodvoice, as well as some smaller music pages.
Avonlea has over 120 original songs, 50 of which are professionally recorded. She plans to release her music soon on Instagram.

Phillip’s music has been featured in hundreds of blogs in the U.S., Asia, Russia, and the UK. This year she released a new single “Party By Myself” that has been streamed over 2 million times in a two month period.
